The demographic shockwaves of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Europe produced tremendous change in the national economies and affected the political, social, and cultural development of these societies. Migration historians have begun to connect the various European migratory streams during this period with transcontinental migration to North America. This volume contains empirical studies on German in-migration, internal migration, and transatlantic emigration from the 1820s to the 1930s, placed in a comparative perspective of Polish, Swedish, and Irish migration to North America. Special emphasis is placed on the role of women in the process of migration. By looking specifically at postwar Germany, Klaus J. Bade underscores the relevance of this history in a concluding essay.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... brilliant, readable and path-breaking ... a brilliant piece of social history, with essays that come alive because of the range of sources used and their consequent readability'. English Historical Review
"...[this] superb collection of essays...provides vivid confirmation of the invaluable current contributions by German scholars to these subjects....Hoerder's and Nagler's collection will be read with great profit, both for its contributions to migration theory and for the rich data it contains." American Historical Review
"This collection of well-researched essays, mostly written by native German scholars, probes deeply into the many facets of German migration and its causes..." The Journal of American History
"...the volume marks a welcome expansion of the horizons in German migration history and brings to light some exciting and seminal scholarship....The contributions are conscientiously and competently edited, prefaced with a very useful interpretative essay by Hoerder, and furnished with a ten-page index. They will no doubt inspire further research and fuel the ongoing scholarly debate." International History Review
